Teaching Earth's Movement

Earth's Movement

Earth is always moving, but it is so slow you will never be able to feel it. You can see it if you pay attention to the placement of the sun in the sky throughout the day. Earth moves on its axis. As it moves, it circles around the sun. After time passes, we no longer face the sun but the night sky instead.
